Thank you for that

OK, next is pour teaspoon gas in the plug hole install the plug

put choke to 1/2, and start , if it still don't start ,

then it is a carb issue, will need to get a bottle of Sea Foam

at auto parts or Hardware store , add 2-3 oz to fuel tank

then start and run with 1/2 choke

I hope this helped you
